Purser’s money bag

Made as part of a batch of objects for handling and filming… The only parts of the original bag to survive were the wooden core, some of the woven leather from the handle, and the five closing flaps for the bags. The rest is based on contemporary pictorial evidence. The softer leather is kip, the flaps and back panels are calf, the closure beads are boxwood, and the beads on the inside (which you can’t see!) are bone. The beads were all turned especially for the bag, although I do also keep some in stock.

I’m hoping to have one or two of these on the stall at TORM in November, time permitting!
